WHAT WE DO

Fane is a dynamic and market-leading live and online production company, working with inspiring voices from the world of literature, podcasts, screen and stage.

Highlights from Fane’s first 4 years include sold-out events for John le Carré, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Julie Andrews, Dolly Alderton, Adam Kay, Sandi Toksvig, The Receipts Podcast, Stacey Dooley, Joanna Lumley, Jay Rayner, Lady Glenconner, and Marian Keyes; a collaboration with Margaret Atwood on the launch of The Testaments, creating a live event at the National Theatre, London to mark the release – which was screened to 1,500 cinemas around the world across five continents; and our Words Weekend festival at Sage Gateshead, celebrating the power of words and stories whilst championing diversity, accessibility and the rich culture of the North East. We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our live events are held in venues outside of London.

In response to the COVID19 pandemic, Fane efficiently and nimbly established Fane Online: digital broadcast-quality livestreamed events with celebrated authors and public figures, beamed directly into the homes of thousands of people across the globe. Since its iteration, Fane Online has produced events with Graham Norton, Ant & Dec, Fatima Bhutto, Stephen Fry, Arsène Wenger, Sir Trevor McDonald, Dawn French, Layla Saad, Tom Allen, Elizabeth Day, Matthew McConaughey, Nigella Lawson, Michael J. Fox, Nadiya Hussain and many more.

In addition, Fane programme over 700 shows per year at intimate central London venue, Crazy Coqs within the Brasserie Zédel complex, with a variety of comedy, cabaret and live music. The venue now houses a 4 camera filming and live streaming capability, with 25% of shows streamed globally.

On the back of rapid growth, Fane expanded into the United States and Australasia, opening an office in Sydney, Australia in 2019.

Upcoming 2021 highlights include live UK tours with Nigella Lawson, Grayson Perry, Test Match Special, Katie Piper, Monty Don, Armistead Maupin, Tim Peake and Fortunately…with Fi and Jane.
